(They are on pg 137 of Grandma A's cook book) I have made 1/2 a batch before and they work fine.
They are easy. Behold:
1 C water
1/2 C butter or shortening (choose butter!)
1/2 tsp salt
Some kind of good, gooey stuff and opptional powdered sugar.
So you heat the butter (good choice!) and water and salt to a boiling point and add the flour all at once, stiring quickly (it says "vigorously", but sheesh, don't hurt anything). It will thicken quick, but keep beating it and stiring it till it leaves the sides of your pan and balls up around your wooden spoon. Let it cool slightly, then beat eggs in one at a time (doing all 4 at once is hard!), beating each in well. You can use a machine- it makes it lighter.
Then drop by spoonfuls (the bigger the spoonful, the bigger the
puff) onto greased baking sheet. Spread 'em out - they puff.
Bake at 400* for 30 min (this is a lie, as mine were too dark by min 18). They just need to be dry and browned. Cool, cut the tops off, gut them if necessary, and fill with pudding, whipped cream, jam, a bit of syrup, sugared strawberries, etc. etc. They aren't all that great by themselves (no sugar to speak of), but they are the vessel to hold all the other goodness. We used instant choc pudding. Very nice.
